Calling all artists!
Flagstone is looking for an amazing student-created cover for the 2016 - 2017 yearbook! This year, we are going with a ROCKS traits theme! The cover should also have a spot to display that this is the 2016 - 2017 school year! If you are interested in creating your design please turn them into Mrs. Mallory’s classroom (Blue Pod Room 107). All covers are due before Thanksgiving break!

Spelling Bee Information
If you are interested in trying out for this year's Spelling Bee, please attend the written portion on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 4:15 p.m. in the Flagstone gym. From this written portion, the top twenty five will be chosen for the school-wide spelling bee on January 9, 2016. There is no registration necessary, so if you are interested, please just head to the gym after school. Thank you!
Please email Brooke Basner at, Lynn Robnett at, or Adriann Valdez at with any questions or concerns.

We need your help!  Flagstone's Student Council has begun collecting Box Tops.  Please neatly cut out any Box Tops you may have at home, check the expiration date, and then either glue or tape them to the Box Tops sheet your student brought home last week.  You may also put the cut out Box Tops in a bag.  Make sure to send the Box Tops back to school with your student!  We are having a school-wide friendly competition to see which class can collect the most Box Tops each month!  Each Box Top is worth 10¢, so it will add up quickly!  At this time we are only collecting Box Tops, and are not accepting Labels for Education.  Thanks so much for all of your help!

The Great American Eclipse-- August 21, 2017 On Monday, August 21, FSE students and staff will be given the amazing opportunity to view the solar eclipse via live streaming in their classrooms.  For the safety of all students, all recesses will be held indoors on this day.  We are asking that parents of our part-time kindergarten classroom pick up their children in the classrooms to avoid the temptation of looking up at the sun while waiting for pickup.  While the length of the eclipse will last from 10:23am to 1:15pm that day, the maximum viewing time will be at 11:47am.  If you would like to live stream the eclipse, visit  We hope you’ll talk to your children about this once-in-a-lifetime event!

Dear FSE Parents, We are hoping that all parents can come to our Back to School Night tonight from 6 to 7 pm.  We will have two sessions one from 6:00-6:25 pm and one from 6:30-7:00 pm in each classroom.  If you do decide to bring younger siblings please be mindful of the noise level when the teacher is presenting the material.  We hope to see all of you here!
Updates This year we adopted a new math program called enVision.  After much research and discussion we felt that this program was the best fit for our students based on feedback from parents and the achievement of our students. Your child's teacher will give you access to the online games and materials to help your children at home with their math achievement.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher should you have any questions regarding this new program. ROCKS: We have refined and updated our ROCKS curriculum to focus more on a growth mindset rather than punitive measures in our teaching of these important character traits.…
